Chromium-based Edge leaks in its entirety, and you can install it now

Over the last few weeks, there have been lots of leaks around Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser. First, we reported on screenshots that were leaked, then there were support documents, an extensions page, and even an installer that didn't work. But now, the full browser has leaked for anyone to try out.

Spotted by Aggiornamenti Lumia, the PCBeta forum has a link to a ZIP file with the browser. If you run the Setup.exe file that's included, the browser will install.

Naturally, we've installed it, and we'll have a hands-on video later on today. The browsing experience is exactly the same as in Chrome, but with a layer of Microsoft on top of it. You can choose to install extensions from either the Microsoft Store or the Google Store, and you'll want to sign in with your Microsoft account.

Note that if you install this app, you're doing it at your own risk. Obviously, it's coming from a third-party, so you should always be skeptical of executable files from untrusted sources.

There are still bits of Edge that are missing, such as the ability to write on webpages. Clearly, this isn't done, and Microsoft still has a long way to do. A public preview should be coming soon though.
